Google Streetmaps inspired Cern to create the world's largest scavenger hunt.

The brilliant minds at Cern Computing Centre, which is considered to be one of the largest scientific research institutions, set up an elaborate Lego-figurine scavenger hunt for the world to take part in. Before the Google team arrived at the Centre, more than 20 little characters were scattered across the floors, racks, and servers, turning the indoor Google Street View photoshoot into a challenge for treasure hunters worldwide.

Like all good scavenger hunts, there must be a winner. The good-hearted institution has noted there will be not one, but two winners. In order to be eligible for the grand prize, players must find at least three minifigures, and email the screenshots to TreasureHunt-ComputingCentre@cern.chx. Two lucky participants will have the fortune to choose any item they like from the Cern Gift Guide.

The scavenger hunt is open until January 31st. To help direct people to the right place, Cern has provided maps of the two floors of its computer centre. Also, Cern says “try looking on top of racks and servers; these figurines won’t be hanging from the air!”
